The “blackened” ones are actually just covered by spores from another mushroom. I touched it and it smudged off.

As for not being sensitive to psilocin, that’s unfortunate.

They are still active, the bluing is an indication of chemical activity. You are probably not very sensitive to psilocybin and psilocin.

the blackening ones might be weaker due to cell expansion and further exposure to oxygen, but this species is highly active, and every time you bruise them your probably destroying activity.

Maybe active as a speices, but not this strain

20 grams fresh, very slight weirdness, nothing more.

Completely active.

Yes, Alan is right. P. cyanescens is definitely an ‘active’ species.

These are active, I am sure. If they were inactive they would not be staining blue. Don’t eat a whole ton of them thinking they are weak, either. If you eat 10 – 15 grams wet or 1 to 2 grams dried, you will notice some effects. While peoples sensitivity to psilocin varies, no one is immune.

Very Nice.

Hey did you find those in my back yard? We got tons of ice plants.

Just curious….

How did you determine this was completely inactive? ( This is a rhetorical question ;)
